One caveat on this update - There is a remaining name space collision
between 32-bit spur and 64-bit spur64 (same ./lib/squeak/<version>
directory) when the two VMs are built from the same code base. You can
install 32-bit V3 cog with 64-bit spur64 on the same machine without
issue though. I'm not sure if this conflict is worth worrying about,
but if so an additional update would be needed to provide distinct
directory names for the 32 and 64 bit spur VMs.

A simple workaround is to install the 32-bit and 64-bit spur VMs from
different git commit levels (i.e. just install a 32-bit VM that was
built a week or so ago).
